Thorpe Dental Group is pleased to announce that we are able to offer CEREC restorations at our Woodthorpe and  Copmanthorpe sites.


What is CEREC?

CEREC is a dental restoration that allows dental practitioners to produce ceramic dental restorations using 3D photography.

CEREC allows the dental practitioner to produce a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay within an hour- a procedure that would normally take up to two weeks!

How does it work?

Instead of the traditional method of using dental putty to create an impression, CEREC creates a 3D model of the tooth using a highly sensitive camera. Once this has been created, it is sent to an onsite milling machine which fabricates the tooth from a ceramic block- a process that takes anywhere from 6-30 minutes.

Ceramic blocks come in a wide range of colours and shades and will be selected to match the colour of the surrounding teeth.

  • Protects and preserves your own tooth’s structural integrity
  • Ceramics are bio-compatible
